There are so many not-to-be-missed European dates:

You could visit the cosmopolitan Barcelona in mid August and discover the Festa Major in the charming Gràcia Quarter, home to several masterpieces of the architect Gaudì. Walking through the streets you will be amazed by the vaults of colorful decorations surrounding you and the creativity which distinguishes them.

Why not fly to Germany, where each area has its own local production and there are as many 5000 different types of beer? Each year the last two weekends of September and the first one of October host the Oktoberfest in Munich, a dip in the Bavarian tradition with its folklore and magical atmosphere.

Christmas Markets are a big tradition in Europe. With its traditional flair and ambiance the Salzburg Christmas Market is the perfect setting to get in the mood for Christmas. You will be enchanted by traditional craftsmanship, delicious Christmas cookies and the delicate scent of mulled wine which envelops the stalls.

Treat yourself to a vacation in France during the Bordeaux Wine Festival in June 2016, the world’s largest food and wine attraction organized just every two years. If you are an enthusiastic jazz lover, the international Montreux Jazz Festival is not to be missed: surrounded by vineyards and mountains on the Geneva Lake, the town was the ideal setting for “Smoke on the water” recorded by Deep Purple in 1973.
